The most challenging ride is the 109km Billy, featuring some of the more demanding climbs and exciting descents in this part of the Peak District.
The mid-route, all signed and on mostly quiet roads, the Nanny is a 54km tour suitable for reasonably fit adults and takes in some of our most stunning scenery and natural beauty as well as a killer climb!
The Kid – Family Ride
The Kid is a very special signed family route of about 18km that will take in quiet roads and rough tracks. You will enoy a snack stop and a beautiful 2km section on private forest trails linking Bank Top and Mag Clough farms.
There will be a tarmac only option and this route can be extended or shortened easily – variations posted the week before. Full support including ‘emergency’ pick up if needed!
The ‘Untethered’ Gruff Gravel 2021
The Gruff Gravel has ‘sold out’ well before the three times we have run it. This year will be no exception. There is a limit of 50 riders and our staggered start aims to stretch out the event to keep the tracks and trails free for you to enjoy.
Last year, we headed deep into the White Peak of green lanes, quarry tracks and drove roads. After forays North into the Dark Peak, often over tough, off-road tracks, last years loop was well received and emphasised the gravel roads and trails we have in abundance, a Strada Bianchi for the Derbyshire Dales but with all the time you need to enjoy the views (and the pub gardens!).
The 2022 route will be shared 7 days before the Goat event; GPX and TPX files will be sent to entrants with support getting the route onto your device. Advice on terrain, food and drink stops, equipment and conditions will be updated; all participants will be encouraged to set off individually or in small groups in your own time from 9 a.m. Registration onwards.
Not without considerable interest, the proposed route will still be a challenge. Get some gravel miles in before the day!
